have layover in NY October 22 just long enough to sneak out for a late lunch near JFK. This is a key meal, jet-lagwise, because it will be dinner time in France and want to start getting on that schedule. Need not be fancy, just accessible and quick.
The return flight arrives 8:05pm on 11/17 so proximity and kitchen closing time are key. The return layover gives us almost a day in NY. We have not yet booked a hotel.
We fly out next day at 5pm so time for only dinner Nov 17 and lunch Nov 18. So what area and restos make sense given the time constraints?
